Ronin Collective is honored to release a 58 minute-long Full Lenght by Montrealer 1vs0. Starting off with a dark and mysterious electronica trip with '' let the sounds begin'', the rest of the album follows the mood the first track sets and flows perfectly into one another to end with the equally adequate Fumes v4, a 12 minute ambiant breakbeat epic.. Done with masterfull tecnique, the dark, ecelectic, electric, sometimes hectik, sometimes mathematik, trip-hoppy sound 1vs0 showcases in this LP...

After more than 2 years of inactivity, Ronin Collective is back, and we wanted to do a special release for our return. Gama, a 24 track, 2hour compilation featuring Ronin members, guests and friends perfectly defining the eclecticism behind the Ronin style. You'll find everything ronin has been and more; returning members deliver yet again with a periphery of tones and styles from Blisaed's guitar-hop, to Wiseman's folk-psychadelia, to Benefit of the Boomerang's flaming jungle and V0idnull's...

Matt is back with his first ep in 8 months after his very successfull luster heart lp with his 4 track ep ' Timefold ep '. With this release, matt effectively retrospects his style as well as foretells the future of blisaed. He twists and turns between idm and ambient, all the while keeping his trademark lushness in his melodies and beats. From the opening track ' Biptar ''s vocally infused idm to ' Signs of time' 's ethereal soundscapes, to 'Timefold's harsher, cinematic electronica and comes...

Fah is back at ronin with a 53 minutes full length release of pure, dark bliss. After releasing some eps on Botb's netlabel Yomi Records, he offers us Halftone Bin, 8 tracks of ambient mastery. Genious sound architechture it is: delicate tones and subtle, warm ambiences with sometimes contrasting simple beats, drones and haunting effects. Organic, chaotic, yet somewhat techincal and cold, Halftone Bin's contradicting moods form great moments of beauty, sadness and introspection.

Blisaed once again brings us dreamy rollin, honest, but naive electronic trips. The title track, I wanna be your fantasy, is a trip-hoppy, bouncy yet humble track sugarcoated with blisaed's trademark emotional nostalgia. Continuing in the same mindset, Dehiscence is a calm, idm/hip-hop mix of sweet vibes and piano melodies. High quality music with soul.

Vizion finally releases after a long while of inactivity, a 4 track ep entitled Xian EP ; dark supertextures mixed with hip-hop groove and dirty beatworks, all inspired by Chinese mythology and gung fu. Crispy melodies, noisy ambiances, distorted beats, epic melodies and sometimes progressive soundscaping make vizion's debute ronin release a must-get.

Following up on his first ever netrelease on benefit of the boomerang's netlabel Yomi Records, Holland's Fah brings us 34 minutes of intense beat engineering and manipulation. Eclectic, slow paced tracks filled with mechanical darkness that contradictivaly creates an organic feel through the musical hydrolics. Creeping, yet warm and comferting at times, a peak into unkown territory. BioBip is fah's own mixture of idm and ambient brought to you through the staticity of his individuality.

Steven Anderson is back at ronin after his guest release on blisaed's ' love vs hate = the breakup ep ' which featured a very emotional piano & sax piece. Following up on those footsteps, he presents to us his No Name ep, 9 minutes of absolutely beatless, blissfull travels into orchestral soundscapes and pianos. Enchanting, charming and esotheric, 3 tracks of pure emotion, of pure intimacy that eftexem has the goodwill to share with us. Beauty and sadness, melded into music.

Wiseman comes back to ronin and releases a 4 track EP entitled '' another kind of muzik : Let's start the revolution ''. While the title may seem agressive, this kind of muzik is as jazzy, chilled out and mellow as it gets. Think late night cabarets, martini vs. urban travel / gangster jazz vs. northern europe. Something to listen while laying back, smokin' one, with coffee in the mourning. Made with extensive amounts of sensimilla, this music brightens the day with its simple playfullness; and...

Libris is back at ronin, releasing the first single track and also his first solo release, ''Fluid Power'' , a name well chosen, which accurately depicts the light and heavy/ slow but fast mood this track offers. Trademark to libris is his long progressive melodies and beatwork, ever changing and evolving from start to finish. There's a certain mettalic liquidity that makes this track a sincerly memorable one ; a perfect soundtrack to look outside, at night, when it rains on concrete.

Patient #021042 is the debute EP from Yomi records founder Benefit of the Boomerang. Filled with his trademark darkness, this highly tense and nerve wrecking EP is bound to get you crazy. 2 tracks of utter psychadelia and beat manipulation, done in BotB's way, which is headbangin' breaks and mental illness. Sociopathic evil clown music for ya'll.

Benefit of the boomearng furthers his character with this psychotic f*cking release, The Rodent Conspiracy. 6 tracks of utter psychadelicious, destructive poetry. Melting metal and mind, the result is a chaotic mix of broken jungalized beats, evil clown music, spasmic electric mayhem and razorsharp vibes. A chunk of his musical flesh, this ep is as thoughtnumbing as it is ingenious, as nerve-racking as it is imaginative and as original as it is suprising ! Check it out !
